NRA Endorses Sen. John McCain

Posted By on Thu, Jun 3, 2010 at 3:38 PM

The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund announces an endorsement of John McCain. That can't help J.D. Hayworth's insurgent campaign.

From the release:

The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing U.S. Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) in the August 24 Republican primary.

“John McCain has steadfastly voted against every gun and ammunition ban in Congress,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. "This along with his commitment to preserving our hunting heritage has earned him the NRA-PVF’s endorsement.”

Sen. McCain voted to end reckless lawsuits against gun manufacturers and to

prohibit gun confiscation from law-abiding Americans during states of emergency. He is leading the fight to restore self-defense rights in Washington, D.C. through his introduction of the Second Amendment Enforcement Act.

McCain signed the pro-gun congressional amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court in support of the individual right to keep and bear arms in the historic Heller case. He also signed the congressional amicus brief stating that the Second Amendment applies to all Americans, no matter where they live, in the McDonald case currently before the Court.

Sen. McCain’s consistent opposition to the failed Clinton semi-auto ban, dating back to the original votes in 1993, has made him a friend to gun owners across the country. He continues to be a strong voice in fighting ongoing efforts by the United Nations to dismantle the Second Amendment.

Cox continued, “We ask all Arizona gun-owners, hunters and NRA members to vote for John McCain in the U.S. Senate republican primary on August 24th.”
